Comment:
I suffer from severe leg cramps from my hips to my toes. when this happens, my feet turn inward & it usually last around two hours. I am currently going through many tests to find the cause & my doctor gave me Skelaxin to help. It does help slightly but does not stop the cramping.

Comment:
I did not take it daily only when I had stress related spasms in my neck. It worked quite well until I developed a sensitivity to it and it began causing swelling of my hands, itching, swelling of my throat and tongue. Very frightening.

Taken to relieve spasms related to disk problems. Spasms have decreased, but the pain along the spine was only marginally reduced. Oh... And I now have a hemorrhoid the size of a peach pit. Some muscles are meant to be tight...
